No. 7 Women's Ice Hockey Featured in New England Hockey Journal

"Women's Journal: Bobcats know ties won't fly in playoffs," written by New England Hockey Journal women's hockey reporter Arielle Aronson

HAMDEN, Conn. – The late season push for the No. 7 Quinnipiac women's ice hockey team was recently featured in the New England Hockey Journal in a piece entitled "Women's Journal: Bobcats know ties won't fly in playoffs" written by Arielle Aronson. The No. 4 seeded Bobcats (20-5-9, 11-4-7 ECAC Hockey) did what they needed to do, winning three straight to end the 2013-14 regular season, to clinch home ice for the ECAC Hockey Quarterfinal best-of-three series against incoming No. 5 seed St. Lawrence (13-17-3, 12-7-3 ECAC Hockey).

Senior forward Kelly Babstock (Mississauga, Ontario) was also named as the New England Hockey Journal's Player of the Week following her milestone achievement, becoming the first Quinnipiac women's ice hockey player to reach 200 career points. Babstock accomplished the feat following her heroic comeback performance against No. 3 Cornell as she assisted on the game-tying goal and then scored the game-winner both in the third period of the Bobcats' 2-1 victory over the Big Red. The following day, Babstock assisted on a Shiann Darkangelo goal to reach the 200-point mark and become just the third player in Quinnipiac hockey history (male or female) to join the illustrious club.
